Dark Chocolate Cookie Butter Cups
October 6, 2014—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Do we need to say more? Oh, you know us. We have to say more. Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Speculoos Cookie Butter Cups are kissing cousins to our Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. We already knew that the combination of Cookie Butter and chocolate was a winner, but the venerable "cup" felt like the ideal way to deliver them together. We also knew that we wanted these to be absolutely perfect. The ratio of cookie butter to chocolate had to be spot-on—that meant that the thickness of the chocolate had to be adjusted over and over again until we found the sweet spot. And then there was the chocolate itself. Milk chocolate was too sweet, at odds with the sweetness of the cookie butter. Some dark chocolate was too dark; some not dark enough. And when we found the one that was just right, we called it a day and enjoyed a little treat. A Dark Chocolate Speculoos Cookie Butter Cup treat, of course.
We're selling these only-at-Trader Joe's creations in an 11 ounce tub containing about 28 individually wrapped cups. At $4.99 for the tub, that's about 18 cents per cup. What a deal!
